Introduction From the Editor

This summer, Alex Folkl, a Medscape student blogger, wrote an entry called "I'm Too Smart for Primary Care", which concerns his interest in going into primary care and the opposition that he has encountered by other individuals who say he "can do better." We asked our Primary Care Roundtable members to respond to this young man with some advice. As always, they were not shy with their opinions.
